I bought this Robert Kaufman Urban Zoologie jelly roll from Craftsy to make a baby quilt for my niece's baby. They don't know if it is a boy or a girl, but I figured bright colors always work. These days, all colors work, but I feel that too much pink could make a new boy's daddy nervous.

Now what? I love the fabric and those birds are just too much. I've added the red dot as the backing and another color. I may pull the brighter green or the brown, not sure yet.

So just basic three stripe blocks to showcase the birds and the patterns, or something more intricate. It's busy, so I don't want to get too fancy (and my quilting skills are at the very basic level. I may just look at this and enjoy the colors for a while!

Cute! A rail fence quilt is fun for jelly rolls! Or I know Jelly Roll Race quilts are popular, I've never made one though. Another option is log cabin or the square in a square (courthouse steps) version of a log cabin.

 With a couple of charm packs you could do a split nine patch it looks more complicated than it is  and is a gender-neutral pattern. This pattern uses honey buns instead of jelly rolls, but it would still work (the sizing would be just a little different):

This pattern was one of the first quilts I completed so I can vouch for its easiness.   Grin

I am collecting cotton Hawaiian fabric scraps for a quilt if you wanted to send any my way!
